Cover Photo: Sr. Patricia Patton, MMS, a midwifery student at the Catholic Maternity Institute in Santa Fe, New Mexico, holding a newborn. Sr. Patricia studied there between September 1953 and September 1954.  This photograph was most likely taken in 1954 after she had several months of didactic instruction and had been an observer during deliveries. By then she would have been ready to attend a birth or care for a newborn which was what her apron and rolled-up sleeves indicates she was doing.
